Projects per year
To identify the needs, a survey was developed and launched asking stakeholders what were their main needs regarding the nutrition and health of 3 categories of sheep (adults, lambs and replacements). Nearly 1300 surveys have been completed across Europe and Turkey. To address the identified needs, 96 solutions (47 on nutrition and 49 on health) were collected as proposed by stakeholders in the different countries. During national workshops, the stakeholders within each country selected the 10 solutions they preferred. In the nutrition category, the 2 solutions preferred were “nutrition plan of ewe lambs from weaning to mating” and “guidelines for interpretation of milk urea concentration in sheep milk”. In the health category, the 3 solutions which were preferred were “design and strategy of the hoof bath”, “booklet on how to recognize lameness” and “mixed grazing of cattle and sheep to limit parasite infestation”. Following this choice, 44 solutions have been further assessed by the end users in different countries. Persistent gaps to the main needs (needs without a proposed solution) have been identified for further research exploitation.
